Seen 2 nice bucks already this morning. Couldn't get one to stop. Had the scope on him as he walked across the field nose down. I whistles, grunted, and finally yelled. Never even flinched. Just kept right on walking.

And I'm sitting here kicking myself for not taking the shot. He wasn't more than 60 yards, and he was walking pretty slow. It would have been fine, but I kept thinking he would stop, and it was finally too late

The more I thought about it, the happier I was that I passed. He was a good deer, but not as good as the one I have on camera. And there is alot of season left. First time in my life I was happy I didn't shoot a buck.

Nope, back at work today. Ended up seeing 3 bucks yesterday. The 2 nice ones and a spike. All had something other than food on their mind, so I'm guessing, the rut is ramping up. If I get out this weekend, I'm heading into their travel areas a little more, hoping to find my big bucks trailing a doe.

Yea, rain has me worried too. But I only have 100 acres, so I can walk all the way in. I just don't wanna have to drag something all the way out.

Was sitting here debating trying to hunt today and saw on Wise County Messenger Facebook page that several roads around my place are closed.

Specifically, it lists 2210 at 920 as being closed.

Since that's near you two, thought I'd share that.

Kenny, rain has stopped for a while, I bet this afternoon (early), until dark will be great. Deer have put up with near non-stop rain since Thursday as the rain trained through Wise. May be one of the best days of the year so far. Plenty crisp out here too, bundle up, wind chill is in the 20's.

Dennis, I want to go badly but looking at the map and the road closure list, I don't think I can get to my place. Waiting to hear back from a neighbor.

I thought your place was by the Lake? should be no problem getting to there. Water is going down pretty fast, of course you have to predict if more rainfall will trap you in. You should have 2 different possible main routs to your place from 114 or 199? A lot of the vegetation has been killed back, still a lot of acorns though. Feeders should start heating up soon.

I'm off 920 a couple miles east of the lake. Two creeks border my place and out of their banks. No other way in.

I'm doing the same. Supposed to have dinner with inlaws and thinking I'll stay in wifes good graces if I don't go today.

Hoping the rain rest of day and tonight is light. If so, I'll head out in the morning.

Saw a six point at feeder this morning. Saw birds and squirrels active in a light rain. Should be real good this evening.

I'm headed out in the morning with plans to sit all day. Only have open air stands, so may opt for a pop up. Hope it stays relatively dry overnight.
